Andrew Bailey Out For Season

Recognizing that it was unavoidable, Boston Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday in New York, manager John Farrell announced Sunday.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. David Altchek, medical director for the New York Mets and co-chief in the Sports Medicine & Shoulder Service at Hospital for Special Surgery.

Bailey said Friday he has a torn capsule, damage to his labrum and a strain of one of the muscles that comprise the rotator cuff. He estimated a recovery period of 12 months.
